US President Joe Biden sent shock waves over the internet for his extremely sexist remarks against a teenage schoolgirl, who had joined an event where the former was delivering a speech. “I tell you what, look at her, she looks like she’s 19 years old, sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed,” Joe Biden said in a sudden, unexpected manner, deviating from the script he was given to speak. The event took place at an event in US’s Virginia. The netizens have slammed Biden, who has a history of courting controversies over his behaviour with women.

In the middle of his speech, Joe Biden suddenly looked at a girl, who had joined with her mother and two older brothers at the event, and said—“I love those barrettes in your hair, man.”
Biden further continued, “I tell you what, look at her, she looks like she’s 19 years old, sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed.” The girl, who seemed school age, was sitting on the left side of the stage when President was addressing the veterans and their family members.
Many people still got confused that how and why the US President deviated from the script and suddenly started praising a school girl. The remark led to chaos on social media soon after the video shared by The Post Millennial on its Twitter.

A user wrote, “This would be front page news on the NYT and the lead story on CNN for two weeks if Trump did this. And no, this isn’t whataboutism. “Hugely embarrassing, he wants her to be 19…… how old is he?? And this is the best man to run your country?? I wouldn’t trust him to run my daughter birthday party”—remarked another user on Twitter.
